Culture and heritage

The park was formally part of a squatting run taken up in the 1840's by the Crooke family, whose homestead is to the north of the park. The property was named "Holey Plains" because the alluvial land along the Latrobe River has many yabby holes, unlike the sandy country that makes up the park.
